Editorial Reviews

Review

“Daniel Montgomery and Mike Cosper are wise guides for the journey. In Faithmapping they set out a pattern for personal discipleship and the life of the faithful Christian in the local church. I welcome this book.”
R. Albert Mohler Jr., President and Joseph Emerson Brown Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

“These days, it seems like ‘gospel-centered’ books are a dime a dozen. Yet, Faithmapping isn’t anything if it’s not unique. The missional focus of this contribution to the gospel-centered movement is a breath of fresh air. Well done.”
Ed Stetzer, President, LifeWay Research; author, Subversive Kingdom

“Faithmapping is excellent. When I wasn’t reading it I was thinking about it, and when I was reading it, I didn’t want to put it down. It is theologically profound and yet very easy to read.”
Jessica Thompson, author, Everyday Grace; coauthor, Give Them Grace

“Daniel Montgomery and Mike Cosper are human torches, afire with the gospel and igniting the dry kindling all around them. This book, full of gospel beauty and Bible wisdom, can light up the path in front of you, as you walk the path God is stretching out before your feet. Read it, and feel the fire.”
Russell D. Moore, President, The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission; author, Onward

When a friend looked at the new book on my desk and asked me what "Faithmapping" was about, I confess I wasn't exactly sure. But when I started reading, it became wonderfully clear: "Faithmapping" aims to give followers of Jesus a compass and a map for navigating the Christian life in the midst of a broken world and disconnected viewpoints within Christianity itself. Sound ambitious? The beauty of the book is its clear, simple, and vivid definitions and their down-to-earth applications. Montgomery and Cosper's writing is both balanced and imaginative. As lead pastors of Sojourn Community Church in Louisville, KY (a church with roots in an artistic, urban subculture which has grown into a four campus megachurch), they creatively bring together a holistic picture of the Christian life.

This life is centered in the gospel of Jesus. In the midst of Christian fads and pendulum swings, they present one gospel that can be viewed through three interconnected aspects. The Gospel of the Kingdom: life with God as it was intended to be, under God's rule and reign, has come. The Gospel of the Cross: through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, we have been made right with God. And the Gospel of Grace: God accepts us and shares his life freely with us at Christ's expense. Each aspect is shown to be integrally related to the others and is vividly illustrated. This gospel brings us into God's one Church, in which we live out five identities: we are worshipers, family, servants, disciples, and witnesses. The context for living these out is the world: our location (homes and neighborhoods), vocation, recreation, restoration (meeting needs), and multiplication.

Cosper and Montgomery believe that "we are navigating the Christian life with fragments of a map--bits and pieces of the good news--rather than the whole picture". Faithmapping is an attempt to "put those map fragments together". They argue that we ought to think of the gospel in a tri-perspectival manner. Rather than emphasizing the kingdom, the cross, or grace we ought to bring these all together into a whole gospel.

The churches identity and mission flow out the gospel. "...the gospel, the church, and our mission are a coherent, organic, interrelated whole, rather than distinct independent ideas". That is why the authorial intention of this book is to map a "whole gospel for the whole church on mission in the whole world".

The book is structured around these themes. First, the whole gospel is outlined. One chapter is given to each of the perspectives (kingdom, cross, grace) and then and argument is made that we need the whole gospel. The gospel informs the churches identity. The second section outlines these five aspects of "gospel-informed identity". These five might sound familiar: worship, family, servants, disciples, and witnesses. The last section, only one chapter, makes the argument that it is within the whole world that the church lives out their "gospel-transformed lives".

The book is well written. Jessica Thompson is correct when she says "it is theologically profound and yet very easy to read". Though it may feel a little like being entered into the middle of a theological discussion, I do believe that the average lay person would have no problem navigating their way through this book. In the same vein a well seasoned theologian would not be bored.

Faithmapping is one of the best books on understanding the gospel and its practical implications in the daily lives of believers I have read. It has a solid theological foundation, but it is very practical and easy to read. One of the strengths of this book is that I can give it to a relatively new Christian and know that they not only can read it and understand it, but that it will ground them in some much needed and often over-looked theological truths.

The authors of the book do a very good job of presenting what is called a "triperspectival" approach to the gospel. The gospel is a brilliant, multifaceted gem. Every angle that you look at it shows you another brilliant truth. Sometimes, authors trying to write about the gospel will focus on one specific aspect to the neglect of others and in the process may give an unbalanced understanding that only this one thing is the key to understanding "the gospel". Montgomery and Cosper do a good job of presenting three "perspectives" that are equally vital in our understanding of the gospel - the gospel as the kingdom of God, the gospel as seen in the cross, and the gospel as shown in the grace of God. One of the most important parts of Faithmapping is that they define what the gospel looks like in each individual aspect and then they show why we most not elevate one aspect to the neglect of the others. This balanced approach is refreshing and invigorating as you read this book.

The authors also do an excellent job of showing how; once we come to a balanced, biblical approach to the gospel, this same gospel has practical affects on the way we worship as individuals and as a faith community. It affects our understanding of the church as a faith "family" of adopted sons and daughters of God.
